Kiddos

I have a ridiculously soft spot in my heart for kids.

For a long time I wanted to be an elementary school teacher so that kids could be part of my life every day. As I got older though, I didn’t feel that’s where God was calling me, but that doesn’t mean I won’t make them a big part of my life. First of all, I can’t wait to have them. I’m in no hurry, there’s plenty I want to do before I have my own, but honestly I can’t wait. There’s a few of them in my life right now that I am just crazy about.

First there’s my church kids, especially Owen. That boy has a smile that can light up a room. I can’t wait to watch him grow older and hopefully be part of his growing experience in the church.

The newest edition is Noah. This is my little second cousin, and he is precious. Just over a month old and I’m already crazy about him. I recently got to hold him for the first time and feed him, and getting so much joy out of doing that makes me unable to imagine how that will be with my own kids.

And last, but definitely not least, Cade. This is Noah’s older brother, and I’ve helped and watched Cade grow for 3 whole years now. He is my best buddy. I tear up just thinking about him, because he means the world to me. Cade and Noah live in Ohio, so I only get to see them every few months. This makes time with them even more precious, and I take advantage of every moment. Cade is the one who makes me want to have kids. Spending time with him and taking care of him brings out a joy in me that only he can. All these little guys are giving me something to look forward to, and providing me with tons of practice!

But it’s not just about the kids, it’s about the family. The only joy I look forward to more than having a kid is sharing that experience with someone else. I love my life now. I love being in my early 20’s and living a fast-paced life, but I feel God’s plan unfolding and seeing where He is working in my life right now to prepare me for the future. So far He has provided me with so much more than I deserve, and I know He will continue to be faithful. I will just continue to put my trust in Him everyday, and glorify Him through every thought, action, and decision.
